My penultimate guest poster in my competition is the lovely Trinity from Lord’s Girls! Thank you so very much Trinity for doing this awesome review of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer! Enjoy everyone!
Hello everyone! My name is Trinity and I am from Lord’s Girls. If you wish to visit me and read my nonsense ramblings, then you can just type in lordsgirls.blogspot.com and it’ll take you there! The internet is wonderful, is it not? Yet however wonderful you think it may be, it is not as amazingly amazing as BOOKS!!! Have you heard of The Lunar Chronicles? The three books that are out so far are titled Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, with the fourth book that is coming out this fall named Winter. Let me just tell you, I am SO EXCITED to get my hands on that beautiful book! Anyway, enough of that! I bet you are sitting there reading this and just dying to know why I love these books so much and why I chose them for this review. 🙂
These books are about classic fairy tales such as Cinderella (Cinder), Red Riding Hood (Scarlet), Rapunzel (Cress), and Snow White (Winter) all combined together into one series. It’s really hard to explain all of this in one paragraph, so I’m going to get some professional help from Wikipedia! (LOL) Here it is: “The Lunar Chronicles is a series of five young adult fantasy novels by American author Marissa Meyer. Each book entails a new take on an old fairy tale, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Snow White. The story takes place in a futuristic world where humans, cyborgs, and androids all coexist.”
I love this series so much because of how the characters react to certain situations, and how Marissa Meyer actually gave the characters personality! I’m sure that all of you are really skeptical (just like I was) about reading these books, because this doesn’t sound very interesting, but it really TRULY is amazing! When my friend recommended this book to me, I almost didn’t even read it. After all, it sounds really weird. But you should really read it! Just give it a chance!
My favorite characters are Cinder, Kai, Cress, Carswell, and Jadin. You’ll meet all of them over the course of the three books. 😉 I also really like these books because they have romance in them, but not THAT kind. Not the kind that is in most YA books, because that is just nasty. Bleh! 😀 It’s just the average fairy tale stuff, really. 🙂
Below are some quotes that I love from these books! Sometimes, I just have to 😀 :
Trinity Star rating: ***** (5 stars)
Not surprising, is it? 😉
Thank you so much Simi for asking me to do this guest post! I really enjoyed doing it, and I hope that this review helps others about their new to be read list, because after all of these posts I’m sure that a lot of people will have one! Anywho, I am sad to be saying: Goodbye and thanks for reading! 🙂
Wow! Thank you so much Trinity for doing this wonderful review! I loved it! I’ve never reviewed a whole series in one post before! There’s an idea… 🙂 Please go and check out Trinity’s blog (link above) and buy the books! What do you think of them? Comment below! Have a great weekend everyone!
